Cardiology Care

Your heart plays a vitally important role in your overall health. This organ the size of a large fist beats around 115,000 times each day, pumping about 2,000 gallons of blood through the body. This ensures that the organs and tissues throughout your body have the essential oxygen they need to function.

Because of that, when your heart isn’t functioning at its best, you can experience a wide range of issues affecting nearly every part of your body. Having access to advanced cardiac care is essential.

We offer an array of cardiac services provided by a team of specialized heart doctors. We care for a wide range of heart health issues, including:

  • Arrhythmia
  • Cardiomyopathy
  • Congenital heart disease
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Heart attack (myocardial infarction)
  • Heart disease
  • Heart failure
  • High blood pressure

Our range of services includes a full spectrum of diagnostic testing to determine an accurate diagnosis, identify any underlying medical conditions and provide advanced cardiac care, including cardiac surgery, when needed. Treatment extends to post surgical care, including cardiovascular rehabilitation and continued monitoring.

Cardiac Research

We are committed to bringing the latest cardiovascular medical and device therapy to our patients, and we use clinical research as one avenue for our patients and physicians to access new and developing cardiovascular treatments.

Eating Breakfast Can Be Good for Your Heart...and Other Surprising Facts

When it comes to health, we think that ‘no surprises’ is a good thing. Obesity, high blood pressure and diabetes are often cited as risk factors for heart disease. Here are four ‘who knew?!’ things related to heart health:

  1. Eating breakfasts –People who frequently skip breakfast are more likely to have heart disease risk factors such as obesity, diabetes, tobacco use, lack of regular exercise and not getting the right amount or type of nutrients.
  2. How you feel about your weights – The more that people internalize negative feelings about their weight, the greater odds of having a cluster of risk factors associated with heart disease, including type 2 diabetes. So, stay positive.
  3. Shoulder pains – Shoulder joint pain or rotator cuff injuries could be a sign that you have an increased risk for heart disease. If you have pain, get it checked out.
  4. Taking nonaspirin pain relievers – In 2016, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration strengthened the warning label on nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen. The new labels recommend remaining alert for warnings of heart attack or stroke while taking NSAIDs.
